Optimized equations for X_{1}(N)
The table below gives links to optimized equations f(x,y)=0 for X_{1}(N), together with parametizations
E=[a_{1}(x,y),a_{2}(x,y),a_{3}(x,y),a_{4}(x,y),a_{6}(x,y)] and
P=[u(x,y),v(x,y)]
that define an elliptic curve
v^{2} + a_{1}uv + a_{3}v = u^{3} + a_{2}u^{2} + a_{4}u + a_{6}
in Weierstrass form on which P is a point of order N.
This extends results for N ≤ 50 described in Constructing elliptic curves with prescribed torsion over finite fields to N ≤ 100, and for many N ≤ 50 gives equations of lower degree (for N > 100, see this table).
In each case the equations below give a map to P^{1} (the function y) that matches the upper bound on the gonality of X_{1}(N) given by Derrickx and van Hoeij
in Gonality of the modular curve X_{1}(N). These bounds are known to be tight for N ≤ 40.
